We are long time members of a major NY buying office, and we participate in a nationwide network of independent retailers to share and learn about up and coming trends and companies.Important to our mix is accessories, the key to finishing every women’s look. From contemporary to a little more traditional, our selection is extensive and always evolving. While quality is never inexpensive, The Clothes Gallery only presents you with fashion items we believe you would love in your wardrobe. Timeless and contemporary, world class style, small town service, we invite you to visit our store or shop here on-line.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Sherree and her husband Michael relocated to the Chicago area in 1981 for Michael’s position as a women’s apparel representative. Sherree attended Penn State University, starting as an art major, then eventually earning her degree in the Sciences. This combination of mathematics and art would come in handy in the world of fashion retailing.
While raising two sons and working side by side with Michael, they opened their showroom in The Chicago Apparel Mart and built a successful business introducing up and coming designers to fashion retailers throughout the Midwest.
In 1995, Sherree decided to buy The Clothes Gallery and the beautiful Beaux-Art building in historic Downtown Crystal Lake. Reinventing the business in her own fashion, The Clothes Gallery became a mainstay of the downtown, and is the leader in women’s fashions and accessories for McHenry County and beyond.
